Your Colorectal Cancer Specialists
Each year, the colorectal cancer specialists in the Gastrointestinal Oncology Program at Moffitt Cancer Center diagnose and treat hundreds of patients who are diagnosed with cancer of the colon or rectum. A rectal or colon cancer oncologist at Moffitt has acquired a highly refined level of expertise that is unmatched by most other providers, due to their experience being at a high-volume cancer center. Our goals are to provide our patients with the answers they need, address their uncertainties and help them make informed treatment decisions to ensure the best possible outcomes and quality of life throughout treatment and beyond.
At Moffitt, each patient receives individualized attention from our collaborative tumor board of colorectal cancer specialists. Our multispecialty colorectal cancer team includes:
- Surgical oncologists
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Interventional radiologists
- Supportive care specialists
Moffitt’s colorectal cancer specialists meet weekly to monitor each patient’s progress and refine his or her treatment plan as appropriate. We offer the most advanced and comprehensive options for treating rectal or colon cancer, including laparoscopic surgery, microsurgery, chemotherapy, targeted drug therapy, chemoembolization, vaccine therapy, brachytherapy and intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), as well as promising new options that are available only through clinical trials. Our collaborative approach, along with our extensive research efforts and robust clinical trials program, has led to our receipt of a Comprehensive Cancer Center designation from the National Cancer Institute. Moffitt is the only cancer center based in Florida to have received this prestigious recognition.
